To those of you who are facing the Basij militias and the Hizbollah thugs in Tehran tomorrow as you make your voices heard for democracy:

You are risking everything in a struggle that I and many in my country believe is one of the most noble and sacred causes a human being can fight for. You are facing an oppression more ruthless and brutal than any our people have been forced to face in our own country in our lifetimes.

Our ancestors raised this flag when they fought a tyrant. It's message is precious to us still.

Tomorrow, you need it more than I do now. You are more worthy of it than I am.

Be brave. You are struggling for a cause worth fighting for, and worth dying for - and there are very few of those.

Salam Alaikum.

Text translation, please?

Should be "Don't walk on me", but it's a net translator, so...

Ok, thanks. I guess that's better than "I can haz saber?"

From the brief bit of googling I did, that looked like the closest thing I could find to their national animal (it's on their flag), so I ran with it.

I mean, c'mon. It's a fucking lion with a goddamn sword. Bear cavalry can't beat that shit.

EDIT: I just saw a report in a Fark thread that's following the Tehran twitter feeds that made me laugh my ass off...

looks like the /b/tards are rolling several threads with IPs of iranian government sites for DDoS attacks.
wonder how thats going?


The power of /b/ - Iran is feeling it.
